#Thread Mayoral control of #CPS has been an unmitigated disaster—#Daley, #RahmHatesUs & #MLL. Mayoral control has failed every single stakeholder in #CPS. #ERSBNow 1/
#MayoralControl has birthed some of the worst EDU policies ever.
50 schools closed.
Failed privatization schemes.
Scores of Black women educators fired.
Schools w/o nurses.
Schools w/o libraries & librarians.
The list is seems endless. #MakeItMakeSense 2/
Now another mayor & their handpicked board intends to bless a re-opening plan that puts everyone & their “mommas” in harms way. #MakeItMakeSense #ERSBNOW 3/…

@realDonaldTrump @CallingAstro424 President Trump, are fed up with #NaziNewsom & Mayors of CA. They will not open up anything. Is this considered Treason to overthrow the US Government by this power grab Communist control? How can they have the power to tell companies they cannot open, or to go close the beaches?
@realDonaldTrump @CallingAstro424 Why does #NaziNewsom can legally tell we the people to stay at home, social distancing, wear a mask and the stores too are nasty to customers if they do not wear a mask, Police are illegally arresting and attacking people for the same thing, while they release criminals from jail
@realDonaldTrump @CallingAstro424 How is this legally possible?
Do Governors and Mayors have a legal right via EO or even legislation to tell Commerce to force people to wear mask, charge for grocery bags, ban products, etc?
Why are politicians who break the law do not get arrested like the rest of us?

Là, c'est TRES sérieux. #Trump président des #EtatsUnis, union fédérale, appelle à la LIBERATION de 3 Etats fédérés qui seraient donc occupés par des autorités illégitimes. Ils sont gouvernés par des démocrates. Explications 👇

2) Sans aucune exagération, ni superlatif, le président #Trump appelle donc à l'insurrection contre les gouverneurs Walz du Minnesota, Whitmer du Michigan et Northam de Virginie puisqu'il les assimile à des autorités illégitimes qui occupent le territoire. C'est ce qu'il écrit.
3) Il n'y a aucune élection prévue aujourd'hui dans ces trois Etats. Le "liberate" de #Trump n'a donc aucun sens métaphorique pacifié. Par contre, il y a dans ces 3 Etats des manifestations de patriotes pro-présidentiels pour réclamer 1 fin des confinements contre le #coronavirus

The Council for National Policy #CNP, "The Secret Society"…
"the heart of a great conservative movement that helped to make America strong and prosperous in the 20th century – now helping to ensure she remains free and secure in the 21st century,"
Some CNP members - Mike Pence comes quickly to mind - in the context of bolstering their conservative credentials, have proudly revealed their CNP membership, even though CNP's policy is to keep membership a secret. Here is it's 2014 Membership, the latest…
#CNP's tentacles include well-connected activists who advocate for the imposition of fundamentalist Christian ideology in public life and have succeeded in forcing their agenda in republican administrations. A list of organizations working with CNP…

The Ukrainian “Drug Deal” & All the President’s Lawyers

Bolton reveals Trump’s trial is more corrupt than we thought

First, this shows that Trump’s chief counsel for his impeachment defense, Pat Cipollone, might have been a fact witness to the very corrupt scheme.

&for which the Senate is now set to acquit him.

Bolton placed Cipollone in the room w/ Trump as he ordered Bolton to pressure Zelensky to work w/ Giuliani to set up a shadow op that would subvert our foreign policy & nat’l interest to Trump’s corrupt political ends

In May, in the Oval Oval Trump directed Bolton, to help with his pressure campaign to gin up damaging info on DEMs from UKR officials

Mulvaney, Giuliani & the WH counsel, Pat A. Cipollone, who is now leading Trump’s impeachment defense, attended the meeting.

All, VERY VERY important to say given the DeVos news:

1. It's VERY unlikely the proposed education cuts will pass, especially under a Dem-controlled House.…

2. That said, give DeVos (and GOP electeds) absolute hell for even proposing it. Script TK.
Script re: #Devos/the Department of Education/#SpecialOlympics cuts.
And here's the Pocan video I refer to in the script:

Another Christian Right science-denying doctor. #MarkGreen was Trump's nominee for Army Secretary. Let that sink in.
The Christian Right have dangerous beliefs. Green was Trump's nominee for Army Secretary. This is not benign.…

There are a lot of reasons to hate the false allegation narrative that swirls around about sexual assault and intimate partner violence--the one #DeVos uses so often. I want to talk about a problem we don't often discuss: how the false allegation narrative hurts men.
As part of my dissertation research, I interviewed a male victim of domestic violence. We spoke at length about his hesitations in accessing campus resources. The most severe? That he would get "Title IX'd."
This means he worried that since he was a man accessing Title IX resources, the only way they would know how to treat him was as a perpetrator. He worried he would be investigated and expelled for walking into a Title IX resource, even though he was the victim.

The #DeVos administration wants to limit the definition of sexual harassment to include actions that are "objectively offensive." In a nation where sexual violence is increasingly politicized, that's a problem.
If we learned anything from Kavanaugh or Franken, it's that no act of sexual violence is "objectively offensive." We minimize the severity of crimes committed by people who are on our side.
In a college context, who will we think is the most objectively offensive when they commit acts of sexual violence? Honors students? Children of professors? Football players? Fraternity men? Or will it be students of color? Or queer students?

Let's revisit #CarterPage. Did you know: #Page visited Moscow on $$ donated by AlfaBank's Petr Aven. AlfaBank: partnered with deVos's Amway; had Richard Burt, Trump's first foreign speech writer, on its board. Burt & Page both worked for Gazprom.…
2. Page announced Tillerson's nomination on Dec 12, 2016, in Moscow. Trump announced Tillerson in the US on Dec. 13. Katehon, Dugin's project, covered Page's visit/speech. Dugin is nicknamed "Putin's brain."…
3. Dugin's projects and publications (in Russian and English) like Katehon and “Orthodox TV channel” Tsargrad are sponsored by Russian right-wing nationalist Konstantin Malofeev, the founder of Marshall Capital, one of the leading Russian investment groups.

Our students deserve better. Hiring for-profit school executives to oversee the unit investigating for-profit schools creates clear and direct conflicts of interest. And it’s no way to run the Department of Education.…
Outrageous. Secretary #DeVos hired for-profit school execs and w/in months the special unit designed to protect students shuttered investigations into 3 for-profit schools. Now they have only 3 staffers to oversee fraud at nearly 6,900 colleges. Draining the swamp? Not.
I’ve written to Secretary #DeVos to ensure that the Dept of Education maintains its commitment to students and investigates colleges that enrich for-profit school execs at the expense of taxpayers.…

DeVos: Schools should decide whether to report undocumented kids [to ICE]…


"Any public school…that denies an education to any undocumented child…by reporting a child to ICE has violated the United States Constitution." See:…
"MALDEF stands ready to hold accountable through legal challenge anyone in public education who attempts to report a student to ICE.”
Congressional @HispanicCaucus publicly renouncing horribly inaccurate statement by Secretary #DeVos, that schools could call ICE on their students. (That'd be unconstitutional.)
